Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
in former years i listened to commonwealth club speeches on the radio, but now i do not have access to them. the selections in this volume take you back to the times you lived through, and give a stronger sense of the eras that went before. it is richly various in personality and subject. It was quite a century! i was very touched by the speech about children given by audrey hepburn and remembered that at the time, not many people seemed to be aware that the charming lovely creature they adored onscreen was involved in something so heartbreaking.
